Welcome Verna

This is a first look at Verna.   We picked her up at the doggy jail in Castle Rock, Colorado this morning.   She is estimated to be 10 years old.   She had been in jail since the 21st of August, waiting for someone to come forward to claim her.   She had been picked up, wandering the streets, no collar or tags.   That is usually the sign of an "on purpose stray".  She has a chip, but the chip leads to a unknown address and invalid phone number.  We will only have her for a few days, then she will have to go to the vet for a check up, and since she is a wonderful lady, she will likely be gone soon.    We do have to wonder why such a lovely, loving lady could be on the streets without her family looking for her.   Somewhere there is a home that is missing a lot of Golden Love.

Welcome Verna!  Being picked up by Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies is the first day of the rest of your life.   We hope we can give you a very happy ending to this story.

  1. If I had a nikhkel fur evFURRYtime I heard Mom say that about her passengers...

    Welkhome Verna!

    Woo are in good paws!


  2. Verna, you will find a wonderful forever home, enjoy your time with Mogley and his crew and enjoy the rest of your life.
    You are going to make some family very,very happy.

  3. Verna, darling, we are sorry you were out there on the streets alone. We are sorry you ended up in a shelter waiting for someone loving to come and get you. And they did, the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. You are in good hands.

    Together with Stella you can wait for your forever home. In the meantime Mogley and Bella will show you the ropes. And you all can play together till you just fall over tiered and go to sleep.

  4. Verna, you will know love like you never have before now!!

  5. I will never understand why someone wouldn't be turning over each and every leaf to find a sweet Golden that they'd had for many years--That's what I would do! But since she's unable to be with her first family, I'm thankful that she's with a wonderful family that will help her find her new home.

  6. Oh Verna, that first picture of you says it all. How come we fall in love with everyone Mogley rescues? Thank goodness she is safe now.

  7. I'm so glad you found her!! You can tell she feels the love already!

  8. Hi Verna - thank goodness you're with Mogley now - he'll help you find your forever home where you'll be treasured like a golden should be. I'll never understand why people are the way they are...

    What a sweet face you have - here's hoping your vet visit goes well and your forever home is around the corner.
